"We are a design-build firm that often collaborate with architects and designers. We really enjoy the friendship and trust we gain from working with each other."
Master Craftsman Paul Driessen
Works in Progress — Ideas Manifested
Every project brings challenges; every solution, fulfillment. Below is a sampling of the current work Timber Innovations is crafting. This page will be updated as each project progresses from vision to reality.
Steel Framed Glass
New home build using steel, glass and concrete.
Challenge: Tall expansive window walls require special engineering to handle load-bearing requirements.
Solution: Steel framing, uncommon in residential homes, requires the Timber Innovations team's technical expertise and skills.
Challenge: Electrical and plumbing mechanicals cannot be concealed in glass walls.
Solution: Wiring and pipes have to be hidden in the ground and within the framework.
Shingle-style Beach Remodel
This is a whole house remodel of a New England Shingle-style beach property, which will be a vacation home for two families. The interior will be updated and, in some cases, reorganized. Upon completion, it will feature a central communal living area with two master bedroom suites and guest rooms in separate wings of the home for privacy.
ARCHITECT: Deep River Partners
STATUS: Completed June 2019
LOCATION: Oostburg, Wisconsin
Stone & Steel Modern
New home constructed of natural stone, steel beams and durable LP Smartsiding. It features a clerestory, where part of the interior ceiling rises through the surrounding rooftop. It contains windows to bring in natural light, fresh air and is also part of a passive solar plan. This architectural feature draws you into the center of the home. A second design feature, a large, private outdoor courtyard, was designed as an extension of the interior living space.

Modern Treehouse New Build
This modern take on a treehouse matches the style of the home that sits nearby. It was designed to provide a play space for visiting grandchildren and a quiet reading sanctuary with a view of the river for the homeowners. The building will be composed of concrete anchors, wooden beams, galvanized metal and partially covered with Poplar Bark siding. The second floor deck and staircase cantilever from the structure. Since it faces the west, the treehouse will be built to withstand westerly winds common to this area.
